Workshop: Photopolymer Plates for Relief Printing
Learn the process of making your own plates in a half-day workshop. Carl Youngmann, a letterpress printer, will demonstrate do-it-yourself, U-V exposure, water-wash methods for producing printable images in your own studio or kitchen.
Starting with an inkjet negative of a scanned image, we will expose a light-sensitive emulsion with a black light, develop the plate in tap water, and make proof copies with a simple brayer and spoon method. Specific products, exposure times and details will be outlined with the idea that participants will be able to make plates themselves in their own workspaces. The focus will be on using photographs and drawings as material for relief printing.
The class will be held at the Northwind Arts Center 2409 Jefferson Street
in Port Townsend, 9:00 to noon, Saturday, May 10, 2014
